once you start to notice these little turns of phrase you literally can’t unsee them 
'protests turn violent'
'clashes with police'
'violence breaks out'
'rocked by blasts', when referring to gaza bombing 
all the nice vague statements that carefully avoid mentioning an actor, because it sounds worse if you do. this violence just spontaneously started happening, it’s crazy!!!!
i’m really tired of it

loaded language and media bias

it’s even worse if you watch the 24hr coverage. CNn has literally been referring to the situation as “uprisings”. Uprisings, like we’re talking about the fucking districts rising against the capitol or some such shit.

According to the autopsy Michael Brown, 6’4”, was shot twice in the head from 1-2 feet away, one from on top. This supports witnesses’ accounts of him being on his knees with his hands in the air. This was not an accident. This was not a tragic mistake. Darren Wilson stood above the unarmed teenager who was surrendering and shot him twice in the head. He shot in cold blood. He shot to kill.

Why Finnish babies sleep in cardboard boxes
For 75 years, Finland’s expectant mothers have been given a box by the state. It’s like a starter kit of clothes, sheets and toys that can even be used as a bed. And some say it helped Finland achieve one of the world’s lowest infant mortality rates.
It’s a tradition that dates back to the 1930s and it’s designed to give all children in Finland, no matter what background they’re from, an equal start in life.
The maternity package - a gift from the government - is available to all expectant mothers.
It contains bodysuits, a sleeping bag, outdoor gear, bathing products for the baby, as well as nappies, bedding and a small mattress.
With the mattress in the bottom, the box becomes a baby’s first bed. Many children, from all social backgrounds, have their first naps within the safety of the box’s four cardboard walls.
Mothers have a choice between taking the box, or a cash grant, currently set at 140 euros, but 95% opt for the box as it’s worth much more.
The tradition dates back to 1938. To begin with, the scheme was only available to families on low incomes, but that changed in 1949.

Socialism at work.

I would rather my tax money pay for this than drone missiles.

what are the ferguson police trying to achieve at this point? distract from mike brown’s murder? crush the peaceful protests? help darren wilson leave the state? convince the media that the majority of ferguson’s citizens are violent rioters and looters? done all that, and they’re still going. it’s like they’re going to keep attacking black people for as long as they can get away with.

Here is a pic of Grace Jones shoving cake into Divine’s mouth at what I believe was Grace’s 30th birthday party…you’re welcome!

It’s like “The Creation of Adam,” but relevant to my interests.
